in mind, nevada is interesting for a number of reasons. ignored the four electoral votes, but it could be interesting in terms of the role of one gary johnson, the third party, libertarian party candidate who might eat into, ironically, barack obama's support in the state because among a lot of more socially liberal his views on pro marijuana, not only for medicinal purposes might help tip the scale. that state is very close. barack obama is favored to win it, but that would be one of those unusual states. gary johnson could be the reason i know that seems perverse. he could take it away from mitt romney in states like new mexico. again, those are feature states coming up. the electoral vote tally as we have right now, mitt romney has about 149 electoral votes to 127 for barack obama. i only hasten to add, there is nothing jilting to that. nothing has been unusual. the red states were expected. the blue states were expected. we have been pencilling in pennsylvania. that, of course, could change things a great deal, but it is not definite yet. we are now confirming that barack oba

shadows of mountains, such as california's sierra nevada. the rain shadow effect works as follows. warm, moist air moves east across the pacific. it hits the coast and is forced upward to get over the mountains. as it rises, it expands and cools, and its moisture turns into clouds, rain, and sometimes snow. this leaves the air dry. as this cool, dry air moves down, on the leeward side of the mountains, it is compressed and heats up again. the air, now warm as well as dry, sucks up what little moisture may be available from the land below, creating deserts as it continues its journey east of the sierra nevada. many of the world's most prominent or well-known deserts are the result of this rain shadow effect-- the mojave in the united states, the gobi desert in central asia. western south america has a similar situation. we have a chain of mountains down the west coast-- the andes-- which serve as a barrier forming this rain shadow. another factor that plays an indirect role in the formation of deserts is plate tectonics. the position of the continents in the polar regions or the equatori

for democrats. virginia, montana are important if the democrats could pick off arizona or nevada. but things have been breaking for the democrats the past couple of weeks, i think. >> brown: youaven had a chance to talk about missouri. >> missouri is a very interesting state where democrats hadn't been earning more than 50% of the votes even when winning because there were other factors. and and there is a third party candidate helping her a little bit. one interesting thing about deb fisher, it's the first time nebraska is sending a woman to the senate. and in new hampshire, the associated press called the democratic governor won there. she will be the only female democratic governor in the country next year because she's won. >> yes. >> brown: is that something you didn't know? did we stump you? >> there is a sitting woman democratic governor right now, but she chose not to seek reelection in north carolina. >> right, so in 2013. >> brown: and back to you, glen and judy. >> ifill: we find it very interesting to see how all this is shaking out partly because we see what's happen

, idaho, nevada, hawaii and utah. one caveat: prices nationwide did decline .3% from august to september. according to corelogic, it's because of an end-of-summer slowdown in housing sales and not signs of a slowdown in the recovery. job openings fell to a five- month low in september due to uncertainty in the u.s. jobs market. the number of open jobs dropped 100,000 to 3.5 million, according to the u.s. department of labor. the economy is growing, but job growth is slow. although october payroll figures were the highest in eight months, companies want to see if the growth continues before hiring more workers. eastman kodak won court approval to cut benefits for 56,000 retirees as part of its chapter 11 restructuring. it will mean $10 million in savings. retirees and medicare recipients fear the loss of benefits, but kodak says the move is legal. by the end of the year, worldwide layoffs at the company will reach 4,000 workers. a weight-loss drug is losing support. pharma company vivus says its weight-loss drug qsymia does not have enough support from insurers, and that is forc

is clear in nevada and colorado. nevada is a pathway to 270 without ohio. i think the post-mortem on this is that -- if the republicans don't win, a look a thow they dealt with the latino vote and the language they used and the perception that is created. the latino vote is one of the pillars of the obama strategy. and a big turnout like the president said -- this is a reason why he wins. he was playing the analyst and acts like he doesn't do it publically. >> the best visual we've seen about the changing face of american politics -- the percentage of the vote white voters make up. it is down 3-4 points each election adn this will continue a long time. it was a reality they could blow off but they can't win without improving those numbers. >> you saw rubio try to do that -- >> and -- it was such a moment. really. and if we see, if republicans are serious about that, they will get serious about immigration reform. >> i will make a prediction if romney doesn't win. this is the last time we see a major party ticket with two white men on it. it will be almost automatic you have some rain
